Wales v All Blacks (Sun 5am, NZ)

The Grand Slam (as the All Blacks tour of the UK is being called) kicks off this Sunday morning (5am!) for us Kiwi's ... for us Welsh it starts at 4pm on Saturday.

So, the sides:
Gareth Thomas (capt); Kevin Morgan, Mark Taylor, Ceri Sweeney, Shane Williams; Stephen Jones, Michael Phillips; Duncan Jones, Mefin Davies, Adam Jones, Brent Cockbain, Robert Sidoli, Jonathan Thomas, Colin Charvis, Michael Owen (Vice-Capt)
Replacements: Rhys Thomas, Chris Horsman, Luke Charteris, Robin Sowden-Taylor, Gareth Cooper, Nicky Robinson, Lee Byrne

All Blacks
Mils Muliaina, Rico Gear, Conrad Smith, Tana Umaga (captain), Joe Rokocoko, Daniel Carter, Byron Kelleher, Rodney So'oialo, Chris Masoe, Jerry Collins, James Ryan, Chris Jack, Carl Hayman, Anton Oliver, Neemia Tialata. Reserves: Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock, Angus Macdonald, Richie McCaw, Jimmy Cowan, Ma'a Nonu, Leon MacDonald.

Who thinks they can win every game? I'm with Mr Henry and think they'll loose at least 2 of the games, specifically Wales and England. Scotland's a walk-over (but you won't hear any one from the All Black camp saying so) and the Irish game will be the game of the series. They will be hurting after losing to Wales and be very focussed because of the media garbage.

That's my predicitions - yours?

Hmm, after hearing that the Welsh side is very much under-strength then maybe not. Maybe it'll be 3 wins out of 4.
Bet Tana doesn't play in Ireland though - just to piss 'em off :-)
